to inspire and to be inspired

October 29, 2011

I am a wife, architect of small human lives and creative superstar.  I live in the beautiful Northwest with my fabulous husband and two absolutely adorable daughters.  When we had little angel number two, I made a big life change - family law paralegal to stay-at-home mom.  My handsome husband works extra hard outside the home so that I can work extra hard in it.  Being here with our little people has given me the freedom and the motivation to create. 

I find myself inspired every day by my girls’ tiny voices, cute faces, their snuggles and the way they light up at the wonder of the world on just a short walk through the neighborhood.  They inspire me.

I find myself inspired every day by my husband’s support.  When I tell him about something I want to do, his response is always the same, “do it.”  He loves to tell people about the things I create and believes that I can be great.  He inspires me.

Now that I am not devoting every free moment to planning our wedding (our beautiful wedding I might add), my brain has a void to fill.  A brilliant mind which finds itself with an open space feels threatened and immediately goes into emergency hyperdrive.  I have found myself with an endless stream of project ideas and my nights are filled with DIY dreams.  When I should be sleeping I am visiting DIY blogs, crochet blogs, sewing blogs, cooking blogs and mom blogs and becoming engrossed in their clever ideas and projects.  I find myself searching my home for things that I can fix, remodeling that can be done, walls that should be painted and empty spaces that need to be filled.  I see things online or in stores that I like and instead of buying them I find myself saying, "I can make that!"  

So the natural thing for someone like me to do, the brilliant crafty type, is to create and to share.  There are countless craft blogs out there, yet every one I visit is different from the one before.  I find amazing ideas on each site and there are even more ideas which remain to be shared.  I want to inspire others as others have inspired me.  

A brilliantly crafty mind is a terrible thing to waste.  So here we go ...
